However Apple themselves has insisted that none of thier customers where affected by the hack incident, the Age Newspaper reported that the boy was able to access accounts of some customers.

The Australian Federal Police raided the home of the boy and saw two laptops he used to access the systems. He was caught boasting about his act on WhatsApp. The boy is a huge fan of Apple and its product and he is a well known Hacker in the Hackers International Community.
